A tooth can appear “too long” for a number of reasons. Sometimes, with tooth eruption, the right amount of tissue didn’t follow the tooth. Other times, teeth erupt at different rates and there is a “roller coaster” of tissue heights. Tissue can be added to the longer tooth to make it shorter. At other times, recession (stripping of the gum line) may have occurred leading to the longer looking tooth. Past periodontal surgery may also be the reason for the change. Tissue can be added to the root of the tooth to correct the height of the gum line.
